Headteacher’s Welcome

I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to this exciting, vibrant and happy Catholic school.

St Joseph’s College is part of the Edmund Rice family of schools, founded by the Christian Brothers and following the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice. Our ethos is grounded in care, a warm friendly atmosphere and the highest academic and behaviour standards. We believe in developing the individual so that our students are enriched academically, spiritually, morally and socially.

Choosing the right school is a key decision for any family. The experience that children have will help shape their future. We take this responsibility very seriously and work tirelessly to ensure that our students leave school with the best possible opportunities to succeed. St Joseph’s College is a highly successful school that prides itself on the excellent outcomes we achieve for our students. Our success doesn’t breed complacency though, and we are determined to continue getting better and better. We are relentless in our pursuit of excellence for all and in order to achieve this we have the highest expectations of ourselves, as well as of our students.

St Joseph’s College is blessed with wonderful creative and committed students and talented, dynamic and dedicated staff who go the extra mile to respond to the needs of each student, enlivening their minds, touching their hearts and developing their talents and skills. We enjoy excellent relationships between staff, students and parents/carers in building a vibrant, busy and happy school.

We look forward to working with you as we endeavour to go from strength to strength.
